Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
Try to boot into safe mode by tapping F8 when you restart and see the Compaq screen. Once you see the multiboot option screen come up, choose "safe Mode with Networking". When windows boots up into safe mode go to control panel > Power Options > In power schemes tab, look down at system standby and select "never", now go to the Hibernation tab and uncheck the box and hit apply.
Click ok and reboot normally.

This is a common hibernation issue ... here is the fix:
Once you are able to get it to start up again (there is no sure fire way to do this, it just happens!).
The virtual memory size is set too low! It must be set to an amount larger than your amount of physical memory. (If you have 2GB or memory, then Virtual memory must be more than 2048MB.
Right-click [My computer]
In the [General] tab, note the amount of RAM
Select the [Advanced] tab
Select the [Settings] button in the "Performance" section.
Click on the [Advanced] tab
Click on the [change] button in the "Virtual Memory" section
Highlight the boot drive (C:)
Don't change the locartion of the VM file.
Select "Custom size" radial button.
Enter a number that ois larger than your physical memory from the General tab
1GB = 1024MB (plus 512MM or so) = 1536MB
2GB=2048MB (plus 512MB or so) = 2560MB
3GB=3072MB (plus 512MB or so) = 3584MB
